I woke up to an SMS from one of my cousins telling me that my grand-aunt just passed away. His message was calm and peaceful. Guess we all know where she’s going and I’m glad she didn’t really have to suffer that much.

One time when I visited her in the hospital, she told me serenely that she wouldn’t blame God in whatever circumstances she is in because she knows He’ll carry her through. She even shared her testimony with me about God healing her: she was in church and she told God that if God could heal her, she would believe in Him. True enough, to cut the story short, she was healed. She had no pains in her leg and she was amazed.

She then continued going to church and well, grew in faith. Honestly, I wouldn’t imagine that she would turn to Christ but she did. She used to tell my cousin off when he asked her whether she wanted to visit his church. And I guess God really works in the most mysterious ways sometimes. And while having breakfast with Mr Ex, he also told me that sometimes cannot fanthom what God does.

But nonetheless, I’ll see u in heaven KP3 🙂

2 weeks off! Whoo! September 24, 2008

On monday, I went to Alexandra Hospital for my wisdom teeth extraction. The dentist arranged to have 2 removed. She actually asked whether I wanted to go under GA and take all four out, i wasn’t that adventurous after hearing SOOOO many horror stories and having gone under the knife myself before (to remove 4 teeth).

Sooooooo… i plucked up enough courage, and with the help of Ms Swimmer and her boy, and went ahead with it. At first I was so scared…I requested to play my mp3s and the dentist/surgeon obliged. I started playing worship songs and praising God. I heard the drilling intensify and so I increased my volume, continued praising Him. In less than 20 min, they asked me to sit up as it was done. Amazing. God was with me through this. Never could do this kinda things, without him 🙂

Praise him!

Anyway I’ll prob put up a few photos on my teeth. Hur hur. I told Ms Swimmer that I kept ALL my teeth that I extracted. She said I was gross. hur hur. Well, I took some photos already. Am ready to gross her out, then throw away my 6 teeth. 🙂

All the best to her later hur hur (when I show it to her )

Time to get out of here…looking for liquids to fill me up. I’m super super hungry from not eating decent food. Sob…

Guess I’ll be attending more when I hit the *gulP* late twenties age bracket. *chants to self – I’m still young, I’m still young*

Anyway once again..congrats to all who have gotten married! Blissful and blessed years ahead!

randomness September 14, 2008

the above were random photos taken from my friendster account… hahaha. today will prob be the last time i’ll be on friendster. I’m and have always been lazy to update it. I tink facebook will face (no pun in intended) the same fate…oh well, we’ll see.

If I could choose a middle name without any fear of judgement from anyone, it would be random. I’ve always been random. For those who know me they would know that pretty well. I remember just on Saturday when I had a meeting with Ms Lai and Mr Loy, they were extremely amused at what I could do with merely a sweet. Hur hur… I’d better just spare you the details

Anyway Im playing LOVE SONG by Sara Bareilles and I’m so totally into the song!!! 🙂 It’s really catchy…another tune to look out for is…Bleeding Love? Yeah, that’s quite a good one too. Two of these songs are good for running.

Speaking of running, i need to run. I mean, I REALLY NEED TO RUN!!! I’ve a 10km run which I definitely need to complete, because…erm…er… I’ve been procrastinating. I signed up for at least 4 runs, and I didn’t turn up for any. *embarrassed* oh well… time to get cracking…. since I signed up for another year of membership with my usual gym, sigh….it’s a sign…

Sigh….another sign…. time’s passing by so quickly! In like 1 weeks time I’m going to have my extraction of two of my wisdom teeth, i’m scared to my wits. I’m a wuss I tell you. After extracting like 4 for my braces, I swore then that I wouldn’t extract any more. Guess I just have to grit my teeth and get it over and done with…wait, I can’t do that…argh!

Enough randomness for the day I reckon. Just thought of this song…I sang this when I was in Secondary School. I never knew it would come to my head today. It’s a pretty simple sweet song. It’s a reminder for me to lean on God at all times. I encourage you to look through the lyrics, better still, try to find out the tune for this…it’ll get stuck in your head. And I pray it will tho, as it is a gentle reminder that someone’s out there, looking out for you 🙂

Are you tired of chasing pretty rainbows?
Are you tired of spinning round and round?
Wrap up all those shattered dreams of your life
And at the feet of Jesus, lay them down.

Give them all, give them all, give them all to Jesus
Shattered dreams, wounded hearts, and broken toys.
Give them all, give them all, give them all to Jesus
And He will turn your sorrows into joy.

He never said you only see sunshine,
He never said there would be no rain.
He only promised a heart full of singing
About the very thing that once brought pain.

Give them all, give them all, give them all to Jesus
Shattered dreams, wounded hearts, and broken toys.
Give them all, give them all, give them all to Jesus
And He will turn your sorrows into joy.

 

the good ol’ days? September 3, 2008

I just met up with a really old friend from my primary school. We were reminiscing about everything – from my copying of her spelling words to my classmates etc. I told her that I never liked my Primary School and I really thank God that I didn’t end up going to the secondary school that had a love bridge connected to another notorious school. The school was filled with bitchiness and I just probably hated every bit of it. Those 6 years there were probably my most miserable.

I was telling her that she was the only primary school friend whom I keep in touch with and it’s no surprise as well, I just wasn’t able to communicate on the same level with the rest of my friends. They wanted to take off their belts and rebel, swear… I on the other hand, was just too lazy to bother about being cool and bitchy Hahaha… maybe i was too soft-spoken, maybe i was even introverted (hur hur, much to many people’s disbelief, it’s true lah!)

Anyway this friend of mine is married already! I’m so happy for her! 🙂 Yet another friend who’s married already but yeah, I’m really happy for her. It was a good time of catching up and it kinda dawned on us that we were friends for almost 2 decades! How scary is that! She kept saying that we were not getting any younger and when was my turn… hahaha… oh well, we’ll just have to wait and see after Oct08 – the make or break talk.

I’m right now just very thankful to God for my friends from secondary school alllllll the way to uni days, esp those close ones who have seen me through my ups and downs. 🙂

 

Love Song September 2, 2008

Filed under: Lyrics,Renzi-Ramblings — renzi @ 2:01 pm

Head under water
And they tell me to breathe easy for a while
Breathing gets harder, even I know that
Made room for me it’s too soon to see
If I’m happy in your hands
I’m unusually hard to hold on to

Blank stares at blank pages
No easy way to say this
You mean well, but you make this hard on me

I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘Cause you asked for it
‘Cause you need one, you see
I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘Cause you tell me it’s
Make or breaking this
If you’re on your way
I’m not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leaving I’m gonna need a better
Reason to write you a love song today, today yeah

I learned the hard way
That they all say things you wanna hear
And my heavy heart sinks deep down under you and
Your twisted words,
Your help just hurts
You are not what I thought you were
Hello to high and dry

Convinced me to please you
Made me think that I need this too
I’m trying to let you hear me as I am

I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘Cause you asked for it
‘Cause you need one, you see
I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘Cause you tell me it’s
Make or breaking this
If you’re on your way
I’m not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leaving I’m gonna need a better
Reason to write you a love song today

Promise me that you’ll leave the light on
To help me see, with daylight my guide gone
Cause I belive there’s a way
You can love me because I said
I won’t write you a love song
‘Cause you asked for it
‘Cause you need one, you see

I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘Cause you tell me it’s make or breaking this

Is that why you wanted a love song
‘Cause you asked for it
‘Cause you need one, you see
I’m not gonna write you a love song
‘Cause you tell me it’s make or breaking this
If you’re on your way
I’m not gonna write you to stay
If your heart is nowhere in it
I don’t want it for a minute
Babe, I’ll walk the seven seas when I believe that
There’s a reason to
Write you a love song today todayyy yeah yeah yeah
